Katarzyna Laskowska, the author of this article, discusses the evolution of Soviet law against alcoholism in the years 1917–1991.

Additionally, she underlines the responsibility of alcohol for crimes committed while under its inﬂuence. The article also includes an assessment of the eﬃciency of anti-alcohol law in the Soviet Union and examines why the measures taken appear to have had so little eﬀect in reducing alcohol consumption in Soviet society.
